101st Airborne Division Battalion Chaplain serves to impact world, comfort others

 

Written by Sgt. Sharifa Newton
40th Public Affairs Detachment

Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – As you walk through the doors of the Headquarters and Headquarters Battalion, 101st Airborne Division, and turn left you see the battalion chaplain’s open door.

Just past his assistant you can see Capt. Daniel T. Isfan, HHB chaplain, who aspires to impact the world.

“I love what I do,” Isfan said. “I love being there for people.”

Being in the Army uniform puts Isfan in a position where he can be a positive influence on Soldiers – to him there is nothing better than building relationships with the people he can provide guidance, support and encouragement.

Isfan was born and raised in South Side Chicago until he was about 15 years old. His parents wanted a better lifestyle for their children, so they moved to Phoenix, Arizona.

Cpt. Daniel T. Isfan, the battalion chaplain for Headquarters and Headquarters Battalion, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), poses for a photo on Fort Campbell, Ky, June 11. “You never know who's going to walk through the door, so you always have to be ready to either give a word of encouragement, a shoulder to cry on, a word of wisdom, or just a presence, someone to be there,” said Isfan. (Sgt. Sharifa Newton, 40th Public Affairs Detachment)

NASA’s Orbiters observe Dust Storm on Mars

 

NASA’s Jet Propulsion Laboratory

NASA - National Aeronautics and Space AdministrationPasadena, CA – Storm chasing takes luck and patience on Earth — and even more so on Mars.

For scientists watching the Red Planet from data gathered by NASA’s orbiters, the past month has been a windfall. “Global” dust storms, where a runaway series of storms creates a dust cloud so large it envelops the planet, only appear every six to eight years (that’s three to four Mars years). Scientists still don’t understand why or how exactly these storms form and evolve.

In June, one of these dust events rapidly engulfed the planet. Scientists first observed a smaller-scale dust storm on May 30th. By June 20th, it had gone global.
